Elevator Pitch:

Bedazzled Ink is dedicated to fiction, nonfiction, and children’s books that celebrate the unique and under-represented voices of women.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

We wanted a company that focused on women's literature but with a twist. Our tagline is "We'll surprise you" because we publish quality books by women and with female protagonists that are written for everyone to enjoy, not just women. Now we have a national distributor, awesome books, and a growing recognition within the industry but we have to stay persistent and chip away at the male bias in the publishing industry. We're changing the attitude toward women's literature, one reader at a time.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

Since 2004, we’ve battled the bias against the female voice in the publishing industry and the struggles of women-owned businesses in finding investors and getting loans. We need the $25,000 to help publish the forty books we have signed for 2017 and 2018; market, promote, and advertise them so they rise above the competition; update software and equipment; and pay for more staff to help us continue to create the high quality books we're known for.
